MELODY MUPETA, Kitwe
THE Kitwe City Council has proposed to spend K177.8 million next year.
The budget is expected to be submitted to the Ministry of Local Government for scrutiny before it can be passed.
Last year, the council planned to spend K172.3 million but only collected K91.2 million, a situation which compromised implementation of critical programmes.
Of the K91.2 million revenue, K28.5 million came from government grants.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
